• 4 chicken breasts Do not use thin breasts. They will dry out.
  • 3/4 cup favorite dark sweet barbecue sauce ( I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • chopped green onions for garnish


  1. Chop 4 chicken breasts into hearty bite size chunks.
  2. In Instant Pot, add in chopped chicken, 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, and 2 tbs soy sauce.
  3. Cook on manual high for 4 min.
  4. When done, fast release steam.
  5. Take 1/4 cup of the barbecue chicken broth sauce out of Instant Pot and mix with 2 tsp cornstarch in a small bowl. (This prevents lumps. Cornstarch will thicken sauce.)
  6. Add cornstarch broth mixture back into Instant Pot.
  7. Add 3/4 cup orange marmalade. Mix well.
  8. Change setting on Instant Pot to sauté setting and sauté for 6 min or until sauce thickens.
  9. Allow it to rest 5 minutes before serving. This will thicken sauce also.
  10. Garnish with green onions. Serve over rice, noodles or by itself.
